Weak and of little interest
23 June 2007 | by (DeKalb Co., Georgia) – See all my reviews

Spiritual awakenings and conversions are probably the most difficult subjects to effectively portray on screen. And much as I have enjoyed many of Dean Jones' performances down through the years, I can't say that he made Colson's conversion dramatically credible to me. I realize that this movie was not intended to tell the story of Watergate, yet in all honesty this chapter of Colson's life really doesn't make any sense except in the context of Watergate.

The movie's heart is in the right place but when it's all said and done, that's not enough reason to spend two hours of your life watching mediocrity.

I had to laugh at the comment from 2002 which seemed to say that (1) Colson's pre-Christian life was sleazy, so (2) therefore, his post-conversion life was not to be taken seriously. Our correspondent from Maine could not have missed the point any more completely than that. But for someone who evidently despises the "Born Again bunch" I suppose it is not surprising.
